    Tenure-Track Positions in Strategy
    Deadline: Thursday, September 30, 2021

    Position Description

    The Strategy Unit at Harvard Business School is seeking outstanding candidates for tenure-track positions at the Assistant and (non-tenured) Associate levels.  We invite applications from candidates who focus on applied research on firms, their interactions, organizations, and markets.

    HBS offers faculty the opportunity to interact with managers and business leaders. We are looking for candidates willing to embrace the opportunity to have their research inspired from these interactions, and who are motivated to produce research that has substantial impact on scholars, educators, as well as practicing managers.

    Faculty in the unit have backgrounds in strategy, economics (theory or empirics), management, sociology, and related fields. What brings the Unit together is an aspiration to become the world's leading developer and disseminator of knowledge related to strategy.

    With time, candidates are expected to become strong, effective teachers.  The Unit supports a doctoral program in strategy, and offers a range of case-based MBA and executive courses on topics such as competitive and corporate strategy, global strategy, boundaries and organization of the firm, technology strategy, nonmarket strategy, and the economics of competitive interactions. Over the course of their careers, we encourage faculty to develop elective courses closely tied to their research agendas and to exploit complementarities between research and course development.


    We are interested in candidates with outstanding academic records and research skills who are pursuing intriguing questions of relevance to strategy.  Applicants should have a strong interest in the concerns of practicing managers, excellent communication skills, and a demonstrated potential to conduct research at the forefront of their field.
